I just received an email from online marketing at Penguin Group. It seems the popular publisher’s blog (http://us.penguingroup.com/static/html/blogs/index.php) is focusing on their science fiction/ fantasy imprints, Roc and Ace over the next four weeks. Check out the behind-the-scenes look at one of the best and most well-known scifi publishers in the biz!
UPDATE (thanks to Diana Pharoh Francis):
Week 1: General introduction to the Imprint (a brief history, list of key authors), the Imprintâ€™s staff. Today weâ€™re going to post introductions to Ginjer Buchanan and Susan Allison, on Thursday weâ€™re going to post introâ€™s to the Associate Editors (Anne Sowards and Jessica Wade), and on Friday weâ€™re going to post introâ€™s to the Editorial Assistants (Danielle Stockely and Cameron Dufty).
Week 2: Interviews with the Imprintâ€™s staff. For R&A weâ€™re running an interview with the Editor-in-Chief Ginjer Buchanan, with Tina Anderson from Publicity, and an interview in which each of the Assistants interview each other.
Week 3: Survey of previously published great books that have defined the character of the Imprint, current big name authors and a review of up and coming stars. Also an opportunity for authors to post updates as to what theyâ€™re currently working on.
Week 4: Guest blogger will write week-in-the-life style posts. The R&A guest blogger will be Jessica Wade
